asked former team owner and then president george w. bush if he believes that what he was seeing on the feel was real. his response was that he wasn't sure. but he hopes so and he wanted to give those playing the benefit of the doubt. today it's clear that they no longer deserve any benefit of any doubt. those who have engaged in this dishonesty now unfairly indict a whole group of people for trying to do it right. it takes hundreds of players who are innocent and lump them together with the few who are guilty or could be guilty. but there is even a bigger question for the tens of millions of americans who follow baseball. if the game is no longer a cynic, why care about the results? the mantra in many lockers rooms across the nation, and i personally heard it, is if you're not cheating, you're not trying. the win at all cost attitude is per vasesive. it dominates the landscape. this is not just about sports. with careers on the lines, so much money to be made, so much glory to be achieved, so much fame to be had, those who initially sought to do it right end up doing it wrong. s
